System Changes: Notice for Library Users

The Portage Library Consortium (PLC) partners- Kent Free Library, Portage County District Library, and Reed Memorial Library- will begin transitioning to its new catalog and circulation system the week of August 28. Our NEW system goes LIVE on August 31. Please take note of a few things:

-Library users MUST have a library card with them to check materials out
between August 28 and August 30.
-Library users will not have online access to their library account from August 28 to August 30.
-Library user PINs will be automatically changed to the last four digits of the telephone number associated with their library account. PINs can be changed by library users anytime after the transition has been completed on August 31.
-Our digital collections– hoopla, OverDrive, and Flipster– will be accessible during the transition.

A link to our NEW catalog will be featured beginning August 31.
